for hillary clinton in 2016? governor rendell? >> well, sure. if hillary runs, as much as i like joe biden, and i think joe has done a terrific job as vice president, you can't stand in the way of history. if hillary runs, she's going to be the nominee, and president obama is going to stump hard for her because really you do need the 12 years to shape all the policy direction that you wanted to achieve, so i think president obama is going to be very big advocate for hillary. >> that will be such poetic symmetry. >> well, hillary did a good job for him in the general. >> and, look, bill helped out a lot in the last race. i think that that is not lost on -- >> they don't disagree on very much. one of the interesting things they said is in 2008 they each had to stretch and reach to come up with something that they didn't -- >> there's one big area. anybody know? >> the individual mandate. >> the individual mandate. >> hillary and obama was against it. >> yeah. >> that was a stretch. declaring a state of emergency as deadly violence erupts across the country. we'll get a live update from cairo
